How To Mix Patterns Right

Stripes, check, dots and colorful flowerprints. Or how about geometric patterns, ethnoprints and the wild animal look? Sometimes it’s just difficult to decide. But nowadays you don’t have to define patterns anymore and can be creative.

In the summer I like to be more adventurous and show my good mood with striking patterns.


With some styling tricks the trendy pattern mix succeeds quite easily:

  • Mix different patterns in the same color or color family. If the garments have a common hue, the outfit looks directly more harmonious.
  • Dots, checks and stripes can be mixed well with other graphic patterns. Another great option for beginners are light stripes, because they go along with almost every design.


  • Meanwhile there’re many clothes that already combine two patterns.



  • In terms of jewelry, less is more! Jewelry and accessories should be used rather sparingly, because they shouldn’t be in focus.
  • More curvy women should choose rather large and lush prints instead of small prints. The other way around small women should stick to small patterns to give their body more curves.

    • Hallo Melanie,

      man kann ganz gut mit leichteren und hellen Mustern anfangen und beispielsweise Streifen mit einem Blumenprint kombinieren. Teste es vielleicht mal bei Kleidungsstücken, die du bereits im Kleiderschrank hast:)

      Es macht wirklich viel Spaß sich auszuprobieren.

      Liebste Grüße,
